The fifth annual Great Chili Cook-Off is here! This weekend, the best of the best will be competing for the coveted Judge’s Award as well as the People Choice Award for their chili recipe. Each year restaurants gather together at the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village around Cinco de Mayo to celebrate and give the community a taste of their secret chili recipes. El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano has won the Judge’s Award in 2001, 2012 and 2014. Both Sedona Fire Department and Verde Valley Fire Department will go head to head with their very own chili versions this year.
Bring the family and join us May 2nd. It should be a day of fun and food for the whole community. Come out to the Great Chili Cook-Off and vote for your favorite batch of chili. It is fun that the whole family can enjoy. Children under 10 are admitted to the Great Chili Cook-Off for free and adult admission is only $10. The Great Chili Cook-Off is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Sedona and all proceeds will go towards benefitting the Rotary Club’s Imagination Library Program that provides Sedona children ages 0-5 with a book each month.

JennyPinLV5 from Las Vegas, Nevada had this to say about her stay just two days ago:
“Quiet, Picturesque, Prime Location”
Right on the Main Street in Sedona, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and tours. Beautiful and QUIET! Game room for kids makes it a perfect place for family. We parked once, and never moved the car until checkout. Our room had an incredible view with a balcony. The staff even allowed us to check in early.
And DaMama4 from Camrose, Canada was more than pleased when she stopped in for a few nights with us. Here is her review:
“Beautiful Well Service Hotel…..A must stay when in Sedona”
Reviewed 1 week ago
We stayed in a Villa Suite for 2 nights and it was pure luxury that we were not expecting but very pleasantly surprised! Lots of room and felt like a home away from home. It had a luxury shower and separate jacuzzi. All marble and tasteful lighting. The bed was ++++ comfortable. The whole room was tastefully decorated. The BEST part of this stay was waking up and looking out the window, or as we had our am coffee on the little patio the amazing view of the Red Rock Mountains. The standard rooms of the hotel would have also had this same view. The breakfast in the morning was better than most buffet we have been to. The is a chef for the morning buffet that prides himself in his work of creating a entire healthy selection of breakfast and brunch foods.The overall service was very good too. Would return to this hotel the next time we stay in Sedona.
If you have had a great stay with us, let us know and other potential customers. Our reputation is what sets us apart from other hotels here in Sedona so help us stand out above the rest.

This St. Patrick’s Day catch the luck of Irish and wash it down with a great draft at Mooney’s Irish Pub. This Sedona Irish Pub is the perfect place to kick back and relax while wearing your green. You will enjoy a great atmosphere, friendly service, fun people and best of all, great beer. Did we the beautiful red rock views from the patio!?
Mooney’s is a great little gem that Sedona keeps hidden away. The drinks are priced like you would hope for and nothing about this place is flashy or pretentious. It is where you would expect to see a few regulars, and you will! Try the clam chowder or the bangers & mash. You won’t be disappointed. The bar has fantastic mixed drinks alongside the great beer. We are certain you won’t find a better bar in Sedona filled with leprechauns and possibly a pot of gold or two.
Swing by this Sedona Irish Pub and enjoy a few Irish drink specials while you toast the Irish in you. Afterwards, relax and call it a night with us and allow us to treat you to a comfortable stay. Our reservations are fast and easy online with our online reservation system. We look forward to seeing you this St. Patrick’s Day.

One thing that big cities don’t have are local coffee shops. Of course you have your Starbucks and other big box coffee shops but the intimate, unique and original coffee spots are hard to come by. We love that Sedona coffee shops have their own unique blends and we encourage you to try one out before hitting the trails. These are just a few of the local favorites that we are sure you will find to be just as amazing as we do. Grab a cup of Joe and enjoy adding a little extra pep in our step with original bold flavors that are unique to each shop.
– Heart of Sedona Coffee Bar – Voted as the top coffee shops in Sedona, it is worth a visit.
– The Field Coffee Shop – A combination of great foods, great art and amazing coffee.
– Sedona Bike & Bean – Enjoy a cup of coffee and rent a bike for the day.
– Red Rock Coffee – Beans are roasted on site which means, it truly is local.
– Pink Java Cafe – The perfect spot to try after your Pink Jeep Tour
– The Sedonut Shop – Once Bad Kitty Koffee, this hot spot is a great addition to the Sedona coffee scene
Only here for a day or two and can’t hit them all? Stop in for a snack for a little afternoon pick-me-up. With great pastries and other delicious foods, you will be happy you did.
